Blueberry and blackberry character with smoky tobacco, make this so serious and solid. Full body. Chewy finish. Structured wine.
James Suckling – 94/95 pt.
Deep purple-black colored, the 2018 Tour Maillet is a little cedary to begin, giving way to Black Forest cake, stewed plums and baked blackberries with hints of bouquet garni and scorched earth. Full-bodied, it has a firm, grainy texture and splash of mid-palate freshness lifting the dense fruit and leading to a lively finish.
